Stayed in Perugia for a conference, and had seen this restaurant was well thought of on Trip Advisor. On my first attempt, it was fully booked up but struck lucky on a Sunday evening. The staff are friendly, with the chef, who spends a lot of time in the dining area, the strongest English speaker, taking a personal interest in... More

If you're in Perugia this restaurant is great. It has loads of character, great service, friendly staff and terrific food. We liked it so much we went back two nights later!

It is quite a rare experience for us to be moved by lunch experience. This one was indeed moving in every sense. On top of all those standard restaurant visit cliche components like interior, menu appearance and explanation, waiting quality, value for money, etc. there comes an indeed very special quality of the local meals complete with grating a black...

We expected great things from la Taverna. What we actually got was a great show with very ordinary food that looked and tasted as though it was fully precooked and then heated for our order. The restaurant seemed to have many tourists as customers who were paying a lot for all those Italian flourishes rather than great cooking. A pity.

Dear Mr. Michael, thank you for visiting our restaurant. I am sorry you did not enjoy our restaurant like most people do. We try our best but we know that even if we try hard to please everyone, sometimes that does not happen. I just would like to reassure you that we DO NOT re-heat any of our dishes, every... More

Excellent meal last night. Great atmosphere and lovely staff. Mineral water, fresh bread and focaccia, bottle of wine, some appetisers, 2 pasta dishes, 2 fillet steaks and coffee for €110. Excellent fresh produce and the steak was cooked to perfection.

We had a fantastic lunch in this great restaurant, owned by an experienced chef that has passion for cooking starting from choosing the best ingredients: we had onions with truffle as starter followed by tagliatelle with ossobuco ragu, everything delicious. Definitively the best place in Perugia. No matter in which season you go simply follow the owner suggestion.

Went on a Wednesday night without a reservation and no problem getting a table. The waiter said he didn't speak much English, but he was good at explaining menu items in English. The wine menu looks a little expensive (starting a 22 euro) and there is no house wine listed, but we asked for the house red, which was good... More

I have to say I am not a huge fan of Tuscan and Umbrian cuisine after living in Italy for over two years. I prefer the coastal cuisine, such as Ligurian with light fresh seafood. Just watch what you order, rather less than more. The pasta portion is so huge that you wouldn't have any stomach left for il secondo.... More

I was visiting Perugia on business and this restaurant was recommended to me by a local. It was indeed one of the best meals I ate while in all of Italy. Claudio, the chef, personally came out and greeted all the patrons. The food was truly spectacular! I hope to return one day! Thanks! Lynne B.
